ST. PAUL, Minn. – A Cannon Falls artist has won the annual Migratory Waterfowl Stamp contest by the Minnesota Department of Naturel Resources.
Jim Caturia’s painting of a gadwall will be featured on the 2019 stamp after being selected from among 19 entries.
The DNR says waterfowl stamp validation for hunting is $7.50 and for an extra 75 cents purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It also is sold as a collectible. Revenue from stamp sales is about $700,000 a year and is dedicated to waterfowl management and habitat work.
The duck stamp contest began in 1977.
